NORTH LAS VEGAS -- The Retail Association of Nevada predicts holiday spending in the state will go up 6.8 percent this year over 2011. When people do a lot of shopping and buying, businesses have to get busy restocking.

Restock Tuesday was in full swing following one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year. Stores, big and small, are restocking shelves for the next round of shoppers.

"This is one of the biggest days for Liquidation.com all year long," said Mitch Robinson, operations manager for Liquidation.com.

The company is an online marketplace for returned and overstocked merchandise. They boast lower prices than regular retailers and appeal to smaller retail outlets, antique stores, and flea market sellers, looking to buy bulk to stock their shelves with everything from clothing to computers.

"Very busy," said Jacqueline Tova, a Liquidation.com warehouse worker. "No time for shopping."

Workers are busy at the company's warehouse in North Las Vegas. The facility opened in 2011 with approximately 30 workers that number has now doubled in just over one year.

"Our volume is up 40 percent, over last year alone, in this building," Robinson said.

Small business customers are logging onto the company's website, from Las Vegas to Salt Lake City, to fill orders. Robinson said website traffic is up 20 percent in the past week.

Liquidation.com is now opening a second warehouse in North Las Vegas which will translate to more job opportunities. The peak hiring season for the company is right after Christmas when shoppers make a lot of returns. They expect to hire 15 to 20 part-time workers.
